Title: Taken By Him
Author: Red Garnier
The Billionaire’s Club: The wealthiest, most powerful men, not only in Chicago, but in the world. They are used to having whatever they want, whenever they want it.
Luke Preston is the ultimate playboy among his billionaire friends. Every bad girl in Chicago has surrendered in his bed. Some good girls, too. But when he ends up in the hospital after an assassination attempt, his friends suggest he take a long vacation to recoup, regroup and lay off the women until the man is caught. However, when Luke lays eyes on the stunning brunette across the beach, she inspires every dark, erotic thought his mind can conjure.
Peyton Lane has always been serious and responsible and she’s determined to have some fun for once in her life. And that means a deliciously, sexy affair with a stranger while she’s on vacation. So when a blond Adonis named Luke crosses her path at the Cancun resort, she’s determined that he will be the one. But Peyton gets more than she bargained for when Luke introduces her to a passion unlike any she has ever experienced and she discovers that behind that charming smile are secrets and a beautiful, damaged soul.
Red Garnier takes readers deep into a world of incredible emotion and undeniable power and possession.
I was very interested to see where this one was going to go. I was at a loss to be honest. At first I thought there was going to be more of a story about what happened to him and why he needed to leave town. I mean we all know he gets shot, but I was left wanting more of that story. Why, who, and even more detail on how. Maybe I just wanted more, well we don’t get it. We know it happens and he has to take some time to relax and heal. That is when we get to meet Peyton.
We all know what is going to happen. We all know how it is going to happen. I have to say that I enjoyed their time together. Little did she know that he also was from the same city she is in.
I did enjoy the connection that there was between them. I wanted to believe that he isn’t just this man whore that he is portrayed as. I wanted to like him because in my mind he is so freakin HOT! I wanted to believe that he has more in him that he could commit, if he found the right girl. That he could be just as mushy and lovey dovey as any other man in love.
Things happen that just get me going. I mean I understand how and why there were moments that Peyton would get upset and I understand BUT at the same time I wanted to say … Really?? Stuff that honestly doesn’t surprise me but at the same time kind of doing.
They are both very stubborn and head strong people. She has a right to be upset but at the same time she really doesn’t. I did enjoy the fun little reunion though.. Have to say that was HOT! I knew I liked him from the get go but that was awesome! 🙂
The only thing that was a bit of a turn off for me more than anything is that it is so short. I just wanted more.
